The Tamil Nadu government Wednesday said it would soon launch 100 electric buses in the state, in collaboration with UK-based C40.

Of the 100 electric buses, 80 would be operating in Chennai and 20 in Coimbatore, the release said. C40 Cities Finance Facility supports major cities to prepare and deliver climate change projects.
